A former Montgomery County Public Schools teacher was sentenced on Monday to five years’ supervised probation for child pornography possession. He also was sentenced to serve 90 days in jail, which he has completed.

Kevin Bremerman, 36, who was a teacher at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Germantown, was charged with having multiple photos and videos of child pornography on his phone on March 29.

Police said at the time that they received a tip in January from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone in Montgomery County was uploading the pornography on a mobile application.

Bremerman was charged with 10 counts of child pornography.

He worked at Goshen Elementary School in Gaithersburg from 2017 to 2020, before taking a job at Roberto Clemente Middle School last July, according to the school system. After Bremerman was arrested, the principals of both schools wrote letters to families saying they didn’t think any students were involved.

Bremerman pleaded guilty to one count of child pornography possession on April 23. Montgomery County Circuit Judge David Lease said during that hearing that the maximum penalty for the offense is five years in prison, but prosecutors asked for no more than six months of incarceration.

On Monday, Lease sentenced Bremerman to five years of supervised probation, law clerk Jordan Kramer told Bethesda Beat.

Kramer said the full sentence is five years of incarceration, with all time except 90 days suspended. Because Bremerman already served the 90 days, he will receive credit for time served, she said.

As of April, Bremerman was on paid administrative leave from the school district. An MCPS spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment on Monday.
